Marty Fink and Alex Juhasz in intergenerational conversation about the ongoing legacy of HIV caregiving, celebrating the launch of Forget Burial: HIV Kinship, Disability, and Queer/Trans Narratives of Care.
Queer and trans people in the 1980s and early ‘90s were dying of AIDS and the government failed to care. Lovers, strangers, artists, and community activists came together to take care of each other in the face of state violence. This book uncovers how early HIV care-giving narratives actually shape how we continue to understand our genders and our disabilities today.
